Lab 106(2): Static and Kinetic FrictionsMartin ZakrzewskiIntroduction:The higher µ is, the more force resists motion if two objects are sliding past each other. There are two forms of friction, kinetic and static. If you try to slide two objects past each other, a small amount of force will result in no motion. The force of friction is greater than the applied force. In objective of the lab is to analyze the forces using a Free-Body-Diagram and experimentally verify your predictions of static and kinetic forces in the case that a wooden cart up along an inclined plane that involves frictions. The static frictional force fs will equal the maximum value f s, man when a body is on the verge of sliding fs,max = µsFN where µs is a constant, called the coefficient of static friction.Once the object starts sliding, the kinetic friction will take over the static friction. The kinetic (sliding moving) frictional for f between the two surfaces is given byFk = µkFN where µk is the coefficient of kinetic(sliding) friction.Method:Part11.Log in the computer using your UCID and password2.
